Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Acrylic, Gouache and Watercolor on Paper.

Mixed media Zen Chickens feature coincidental, accidental, and unexpected connections combining unrelated aspects and surprising analogies. Art-making moments depicted in the Zen Chicken drawings punctuate the human drama to find poetic meaning in everyday life. The Zen Chicken series formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious process of composition that is behind the seemingly random works.

Zen Chicken drawing/painting/prints are based on serene contemplation and the practice of tai chi combined with odd, eccentric, or humoristic elements. Viewers are invited to become part of the art as an added component. Laugh with the Zen Chickens. This artwork as entertainment further complicates the reception of manifold layers of potential meaning and referential aesthetics in each Zen Chicken. Honoria Starbuck currently lives and works in Austin, Texas in the US where she creates one Zen Chicken a day as part of her daily creative process.
